Book capture changes in ladakh
This book is more about the change introduced in the ladakh after the tourism allowed in here on 70s , it is not about the history but the author experience when she came to ladakh in 1975 and what changes she observed .
60% of book is about the philosphy of traditional and modern introduction, which disappoints if someone looking to experience in ladakh. It is book written before 90's so it cannot give you the recent pocture of ladakh.
overall ok book for one time read.
